What It Is
The Totally Monster Best Friends iPad app is based on the picture book of the same name by Sue DiCicco. The story in this digital version is the same, showing kids how best friends stick together through anything. But the ebook includes animations and sound effects that kids activate by tapping the screen.
Is It Fun?
Young kids will enjoy watching the monster best friends in this book have all sorts of adventures together. This ebook can be used as a tool to help reinforce the message of what it means to be, and have, a best friend.
Who It’s For
Totally Monster Best Friends is made for kids under the age of 5, but we think it's more specifically appropriate for kids 2-5. The app does have links to additional apps at the end of the book, but a parent must select the shapes with rounded edges to access the Apple App Store.
What To Be Aware Of
This app is compatible with iPad running iOS 5.1.1 or later.
In order to return to the homepage or visit a specific book page, just tap the half globe at the bottom of the screen.
Young readers will probably want to come back to this ebook for the silly animation and sound effects from the monster characters.
